i care as well Matthew, but I never played the video games much. Not much for the repetitive thumb injury you can get from too much "fun".
Cosmico, doing some headshots for a film tomorrow called "Soulman". The director wants individual pictures of the cast (in black shirts) and crew(in white shirts) for the film. Look it up on face book or search for "Soulman-the movie" on the computer.

Speaking of repetitive thumb injuries, that's why I'll never get one of those cell phones with a full keyboard or touch screen, because everywhere I go I see (zombified) people texting or browsing like mad, peering into them hypnotically, tapping away fingers and thumbs a-flyin'. I can't believe it won't lead to thumb and finger problems later on. Hey, I have an app for that: it's called a crow bar! :)

I know someone at school that can text without looking at the phone, walk down the hall, and be completely spaced out all at the same time (and they haven't ran in to anyone yet).

Just 'cause you can't text don't mean your old. I can't text mostly 'cause I've never tryed but I don't think my mind can tell my thumbs to make the right little movments. Also I need spell check, after I typed this I went back and read it and what I meant and what I typed where completly differnt.

Well, after a time using my "basic" cell phone (an old RAZR by Motorola) my thumb and finger joints hurt a bit, so when I see those very tiny keys on the newer phones, I know it's a lost cause for me.

I may sound like a dinosaur on this subject ( hence the name guyzilla) but I've never liked the idea of cellphones, or a lot of other newfangled features. I do have one but the only reason I do is because mother in law got one for me and one for my wife. Never would have one otherwise. My philosophy is simple. If you call me and get my voicemail, leave a message and I might get back to you. You don't need to get a hold of me when I'm working, driving, at a movie or a restaraunt, or visiting my friends (both of them). And texting, what's up with that? Why would someone use a phone to leave a written message? You have a phone, use your voice! Call waiting is another burr in my side. There is nothing more annoying to me as when I'm having a conversation with someone and I hear a persistant beep while we're talking. A good old fashioned busy signal is more than sufficient. It tells the guy calling you that you're talking to someone else at the moment and that they're just gonna have to wait their damn turn. And those damned menus! If I ever meet up with the guy who invented those, there's gonna be a fight! God, how I miss the good old days.

I agree with everything you said 100%! Cell phones are an annoyance but a necessity for me, due to all the health issues in our family and my having old wheels. And where I live it's a 5-minute drive to desert nothingness, so God forbid my car conks out when I'm in the middle of nowhere!

by "the good old days" you mean:
(1) Pick up phone
(2) Tell operater "Hello Sarah, get me BR-549"
(3) Wait for operater to connet you

I'm younge and have only seen the new phones working, but seeing some of these old tv show and movie and how the phone works has made me wonder:
1. If I get cut-off, how do I get reconnced? In the old movies you hit the side arm till the person on the other end starts to talk. But on cell phones, what do you hit?
2. In the old days you never had to reminder a phone number becouse the operater could find all the numbers. Today you don't have to remimber a number becouse there's speed dial. So if somthing happens to my numbers, how do I get them back?
3. Why is it still called "Speed dial" if phones don't use dials anymore?
4. In the old days, you could tell the operater who you wanted to talk to and they would find them, where ever they might be. Whould the operater still do that today.

PS I have asked people "Why texting is better than talking" and the answer is always:
Becouse when you don't want to talk to them anymore you just stop texting and you don't have to say good-bye.
That's kind of mean if you ask me (but no one did so...)

I never experienced having to call an operator and ask for a number (let alone ringing up Junior Samples at BR-549), but as late as the 1970s my grandmother living in a small country village had to do that sometimes, if she couldn't get the number by dialing. She also was on a party line, and had to tap the dial phone cradle a few times to get the operator.

Or I'd go to the general store and put in a dime to use the pay phone. And pick up a comic book for 12 cents, a bottle of soda for a nickel and a Milkshake candy bar for another nickel. Ah...I'm getting nostalgic for the early '60s! :)

We just accepted it as the way things were done, like having to move the rabbit ears to get a better TV picture, walk to the store to get the newspaper every day, cook dinner on a stove top or in a real oven instead of a microwave, and wind up our watches. Or movie cameras. :)

My friend Quigs knows what I'm talking about. :)

So true Cosmico. That's why I take my cell phone out on acting gigs or auditions otherwise, it just stays at home.
